Zoltan was not available so we got Kalliope. Despite the freakish heat, we enjoyed our tour. Kalliope was a fountain of information having lived here during the Communist era. Also chatted about current politics in Hungary, very interesting.

We had a great time with Zolton. We had a day tour with him and learnt so much about Hungary. We talked about culture, politics, history, modern life, different ethnics etc.. many many interesting topics. We could ask anything we wanted to know and he answered all our questions very thoroughly. His tour made our stay very interesting and special.... More

My fantastic walk in the Salgótarján Street Jewish Cemetery with the fantastic guide Nora MARGITTA is unforgettable. A very big THANK YOU, Nora, again!

I was fortunate to have Zoltan as my guide for two days in Budapest, July 2015. What a rewarding and memorable experience! I'd recommend Rockhoppers to all who are adventurous and looking for a unique tour experience in Budapest - a great city to visit, by the way, and not overrun by tourists, even in the middle of summer.

Zoltan is not just a good but great private guide that guarantees a great tour in Budapest. He takes time to get to know us, try to understand our interests and reasons for visiting Budapest and discuss the options before we even get on the plane. He would give us a brief introduction/history of the points of visit and answer... More

My wife and I had a half day tour with Zoltan in mid July. Rather than reiterate the many positives already listed in existing feedback, I'll keep things brief. Think less of a business / customer relationship and imagine you are visiting of friend who has moved to another city and you are being shown round by that person. If... More

Contacted Zoltan who was not available. No worry he put us in touch with Nora. WOW. Not only is Nora knowledgeable she has a great personality and we felt completely at home walking the Jewish Quarter with her. She gave us history and personal insights. She knew half the people we met on the street. I felt we got the... More

We totally enjoyed our walking tour with Zoltan this last Sunday morning. He picked us up at our Four Seasons hotel and we set off to explore the Pest side - Parliament, Liberty Square, etc., and then via bus, Castle Hill for the last part. Zoltan pulled back the curtain and shared lots of interesting facts, perspectives, and stories about... More

We enjoyed two great half day private tours with Zoltan. I loved his saying if there is an open door we go in and see what there is to discover. This is a kind of tour that you can not get with a large group. And that is exactly what we did. Of course we saw the keys sites and... More
